The Nettleman Institute of Surveying Engineering Technology
“Empowering the next generation of Professional Land Surveyors
through quality distance education programs”
The Nettleman Institute of Land Surveying Engineering Technology was founded by Dr. Charles Nettleman in 2019. Dr. Nettleman has been a land surveyor for his entire professional life, beginning work with his grandfather, Walt G. Robillard, in 2001. Since then, Dr. Nettleman has attended or taught at leading geomatics programs including the University of Florida, New Mexico State University, Troy University, Florida International University, Florida Atlantic University, and Texas A&M – Corpus Christi.
After serving as a professor for over a decade, Dr. Nettleman grew to believe that public universities were not adequately meeting the needs of the land surveying community, so he founded The Nettleman Institute of Land Surveying Engineering Technology. NISET’s Online Surveyor Certification Program was built to teach students from all walks of life, including students who work part-time and full-time, students who are not located near a surveying program, and students who would like to further their education beyond their current holdings. NISET provides the next generation of professional land surveyors with the most current methods, rigorous instructions, and hands-on, practical experience in the land surveying industry.
